Full-bodied Belgian Specialty Ale. Amber in color with beautiful foam and slightly sweet, seductive malt character. Rich, satisfying Belgian experience.

Ver surprised by the 8%, it does not taste strong. A fruity banana aroma at first then becomes very sweet. Nice head when poured from bottle that lasts for a few sips. By the end of the glass sweetness was taking over.

Pours amber color with red hint and medium head. Fresh fruit aroma. Strong malty, sweet and spicy taste. No bitterness at all. Strong sweet aftertaste.

sudomorph (885) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2015
330ml bottle. Best before 31.07.16. Pours a slightly hazy caramel/copper with a one finger, khaki head that thins to a thick film. Carbonation streaming from the center of the glass. Aroma has deep notes of candy sugar, bubblegum, spice, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, slight citrus, and a touch of pepper. Taste is balanced but a touch sweet. Dark sugar, caramel, bubblegum, slight pepper and clove, and a warm, slightly alcohol ending. Medium-full body with a medium-high carbonation. A touch of syrup in the mouth but still clean with a bone dry finish. Overall really nice. In the same realm as Maudite. I like :)

Gurthnar (2928) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 26, 2015
Tap at RJ. Clear deep amber-brown colour, quickly disappearing head. Aroma trippely, green apples, spicy. Taste very sweet, unbalanced, apples present, lightly spicy, alcohol burn. Not bad, but does not suit me well, poorly drinkable.

Achel (140) - GREECE - JUN 25, 2015
An amber beer with a great head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and yeast as well as nuts. The flavor is sweet with notes of wood, nuts, fruits, and plums, leading to a sweet smooth caramel end.

Grisza77 (71) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 23, 2015
Klarowne, bursztynowe piwo o średnio obfitej pianie zdobiącej szkło, która redukuje się do cienkiego pierścienia przy brzegu szkła. Aromat owocowy typowo belgijski, głównie wyczuwalna gruszka. W smaku także przyjemna typowo belgijska owocowość. Goryczka średnia, owocowo-alkoholowa. Ogólnie bardzo dobre piwo, godny reprezentant stylu.

Tayeth (485) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2015
Geruch ist malzig sowie nach Sirup und nach Alkohol. Geschmack relativ alkoholisch und süß, aber kaum was anderes.

dmoncki (42) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUN 23, 2015
Color rojizo. En boca frutal (frutas del bosque), caramelo, azucar para dejar un toque fuerte final en el que aparece la graduación, aunque de forma controlada con un buen regusto.
